USB shipped in more than three billion devices in 2008, including the PC, PC Peripheral, Consumer Electronics (CE), Communications, and Automotive segments. By 2013, the number of wired USB-enabled devices shipped will exceed four billion.

While high-speed USB shipments currently dominate, new 5Gbps SuperSpeed USB products will hit the store shelves by the end of 2009. Initially, SuperSpeed USB will be found in PCs and storage devices. However, soon SuperSpeed USB will also be found in portable devices with increasing amounts of storage capacity, including digital still cameras, digital camcorders, portable media players, and high-end mobile phones. SuperSpeed will greatly speed the downloading of data from these devices.

This report contains five-year annual forecasts for the penetration of all types of wired USB, including low-/full-speed, high-speed, and SuperSpeed USB into 46 separate applications. Five-year annual forecasts for average selling prices for USB host controllers, peripheral controllers, and hub controllers broken down by USB type are also provided, in addition to brief profiles of major USB silicon and IP suppliers.

USB Market Will Get SuperSpeed Boost After Slower 2009

Although the global recession will prompt a slight decline in USB-enabled device shipments this year, next-generation “SuperSpeed” technology will fuel the market over the next several years, reports In-Stat. SuperSpeed, USB’s new incarnation, will deliver 5Gbps, a ten-fold improvement over high-speed USB. With the late 2009 introduction of SuperSpeed, the question is not whether it will be successful, but how successful it will be.

“All PCs, and most PC peripherals have transitioned from full-speed to high-speed. Most of these devices will eventually transition to SuperSpeed, the only issue is the speed of the transition.” says Brian O’Rourke, In-Stat analyst. “For PC peripheral devices, the key will be how quickly SuperSpeed is integrated into the application-specific integrated circuits (ASICs) and microcontrollers that are the brains of these devices.”

Recent research found the following:

- With over three billion devices shipped in 2008 alone, USB is the most successful interface ever. It has been broadly adopted across PCs, PC peripherals, consumer electronics (CE), communications and automotive devices.
- Consumer electronics devices with USB will rise at a 6.6% compound annual growth rate (CAGR) between 2008 and 2013.
- Although mini-USB ports have not made significant progress as a connector on mobile phones, micro-USB ports are expected to become the dominant standard for connectors in mobile phones by 2013.
- USB in computer mice will remain the single highest volume PC peripheral category.
- SuperSpeed USB will represent over 25% of the USB market by 2013.

Recent research, Wired USB 2009: High-Speed Rules, SuperSpeed on the Way covers the worldwide market for USB and USB-enabled devices. It includes:
